What is your value for "fseg" set to? If you only need to run the first 
forecast segment (fcst1) make sure to set fseg=1.

Do you need the 2nd segment for any cycles? Or just the first segment 
all the time? If you wanted to run the 2nd segment for any circumstances 
you can setup an if-statement in your configuration file. Reply just to 
me if you want more info on this.
